inching forward single file,
immune to the
malaria mosquito haze
on the deck of the slaver

one more time you strain your neck
for one last glimpse of your young fine wife
tied ankle to ankle
boarding a different ship

fast forward 200 years:
the Dutch Fist has adjusted its grip
the bank branch fat manager's bosses
are using credit like they used to use a whip

chorus (repeats in background):
they change your name
they make you pay

they took your favorite dream
but they can't sell you a house

it's familiar at least
and you take it sitting down

in indiana where you get off the train
consider bringing a whip to hunt them down

    My Interpretationinching forward single file
    immune to the malaria mosquito haze
    on the deck of a slaver
    one more time you strain your neck
    for one last glimpse of your young fine wife
    tied ankle to ankle
    boarding a different ship

    fast forward two hundred years
    the dutch fist has adjusted it's grip
    the bank branch fat manages bosses
    are using credit like they used to use a whip

    chorus (repeats in background):
    they change your name
    they make you pay

    they took your family tree
    but they can't spare you a house

    it's half a million at least
    and you may take this sitting down

    in gary, indiana when you get off the train
    consider bringing a whip to help to hunt them down
    old fashioned pain
